When its all in your Head to get Fit & Healthy....

 

When its all in your Head to get Fit & Healthy....

So I am turning 44 this Year! I have 3 very busy boys and a "follow thru ,almost Perfect " Husband (in his eyes and HEAD *wink *wink) If I tell you that I am feeling my age .. its REAL.. I see the wrinkles and slowly drooping of the Giles -  I have decided not to Botox cause firstly -I am petrified of Needles, secondly I have seen "BOTCHED" . My luck one eye might never close again and the left side of my face droops and lord knows where my eyebrows might end up!  Otherwise I would do it!  BUT I don't judge , cause that 50 year old Hot Neighbour planting her roses next door , the one your hubby has a peek at sometimes , is prob 85 years old and looking HOT! I feel if you brave enough and wanna feel awesome , then why not!  Just don't get addicted and end up looking like Michael Jackson's long last sister!  Like most of you know,  I am totally addicted to Real Housewives and LOVING those 60 year old  Aunties with Perfect completions and not a frown in sight.

  

BUT my worst is EXERCISE!!

At school I was a champ runner.. now I am breathless walking from the bedroom to the kitchen.I have these HUGE ideas in my head about ...tomorrow...Tomorrow gonna give up Sugar , tomorrow I am gonna start exercising! Its always Tomorrow!


I wake up at 5 am to make "Fresh" school lunches (Still cannot bring myself to make the night before-poofie)! .Get the Kids Breakie sorted  , bags , sports items and out the door on time for my ontime , Healthier then I , Hubby to take the kids to School! 
I then climb back into bed , and it's here I imagine myself doing sit ups , Yoga , toning the tummy and watching the arse lift back into the fantastic firm Bum I used to have!
I even count in my head how many I do!!!! 
I seriously do this in my head and it feels real!
And while I am doing this I am watching " Call the Midwife or NYPD Blue!
So I can multi-Task.

I have absolutely NO Drive at all to exercise. People say "but you so thin and fine , I hate been thin , I want some shape and fat actually , BUT most of all I want to feel Fit and Healthy! 
I feel tired and lethargic.
I HATE the Gyms , and driving somewhere to exercise - I need some-one to come to my house , and push me to exercise , I know you out there!! 
I see so many Women with Rock hard Bods - the other day this fantastic Super Mom , whom I know ,walked passed in her Lycra pants , I could bounce a melon off her butt!
I need that butt! 
The other 2 moms with me , were also sitting with mouths open and imagining themselves in those Lycra pants too! -There really are a lot of us out there doing Exercise mentally! 
My  Hubby says "But you gorgeous and I love you just  like you are... crap I know he still trying to imagine the Firm tummy , hot butt chick he picked up before the kids and Life, and I want to feel good too.

I want to run, trail runs with my boys, but get left walking breathless! 
Another BIG Help would be some MEAL Ideas Ladies - Like maybe 5 meals for the week , NO SUGAR (Healthy) , and ingredients that we can get in this country and pref Woolies or Pick N Pay! Not fancy crap where you need to travel to some remote island for the ingredients! 

So you amazing ,Super Fit , Health Guru's out there - Help a sister in need!
We really all do want to be Healthy for ourselves and kids!
Send some Meal Ideas or Exercise tips to get us motivated and I will SHARE mel@Cafecouch.co.za 

I hope you all have a super duper Week , too you fit and fabulous Ladies -Keep it Up and to us "desperate wanna be Adrenalin junkies ... we need to do something!
